What is the 'What's On Banner' and how does it work?

The 'What's On' banner is an expandable module located immediately below the navigation bar on the PBS.org homepage. Once users have localized, the banner will automatically scroll through the scheduled primetime programming in their location. If users are localized to a zip code or region, the banner will automatically scroll through each station in that area. If users are localized to a single station, the banner will only show information for that station. When users click the 'Tonight's Line-Up' link on the right side of the 'What's On' banner, the module will expand into a full matrix of that night's local primetime programming. If a user is localized to a region, the matrix will include separate tabs for all nearby stations. These tabs are sorted in order of market share.
